Bring Sanity To Albany

For those voting in New York State Senate District 11 in Northeast Queens, please consider Tony Avella!
He is a supporter of public schools and a real ally for those fighting to protect and preserve public education.  He voted against term limits and against mayoral control of schools.  About the position of School Chancellor he has said "I would appoint an educator — someone with a background relevant to the position. Before making a decision I’d sit down and talk with educators, administrators, and parents to find out what they’re looking for in a chancellor. Then I’d decide who the best fit for our schools would be." He believes in smaller class sizes and finds the overemphasis on standardized tests in our schools to be hurting, not helping our children. Albany needs a REAL REFORMER like Tony Avella.  If you are interested in participating in Tony Avella's Get Out The Vote campaign please contact Zoe Waltross at 917 439-8569 or
